Award recognises tomorrow's engineersThe winner of the 2008 HETA Award for Excellence, which recognises the training achievements of future generations of engineers, has been announced. Humberside Engineering Training Association (HETA) is one of the north of England's top engineering apprentice training organisations. The Award for Excellence is presented every year to the first year engineering apprentice who has made the most outstanding progress during their training, and has been sponsored for the last three years by leading industrial lubricants manufacturer ROCOL Lubricants.
This year's winner is Rhys Strandt who works for ConocoPhillips.
Rhys says, "I became interested in a career in engineering in my final year at school which is why I looked further into how HETA could help.
"After applying to HETA, I progressed through the process and was fortunate to secure the position of Pipe Technician at ConocoPhillips.
"I am now in my second year which involves working more on site and I'm going from strength to strength. I was totally shocked at winning the ROCOL award and really enjoyed the presentation evening - I am very grateful to ROCOL and HETA."
HETA trains engineering apprentices in a range of sectors from ports, logistics and petrochemicals to boilermaking and food production. The organisation was founded more than 40 years ago and has helped over 4,500 in that time.
